Provides a summary of the presentations and discussions from a technical workshop held on 22 July 2008 under the auspices of the Process Safety Leadership Group (PSLG) by the Engineering Equipment and Material Users' Association (EEMUA), the Energy Institute (EI) and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

The aim of the workshop was to provide a forum for industry and the Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations Competent Authority (CA) to ensure a common understanding of the recommendations made by the Buncefield Major Investigation Board (MIIB) and the former Buncefield Standards Task Group (BSTG), in relation to fuel storage tank overfill prevention systems.

The proceedings have been produced as a non-verbatim record of the presentations and discussions held during the workshop: they provide a snapshot of the technical issues and actions relevant to the MIIB and BSTG recommendations. The workshop had a broad representation from industry and HSE, so these proceedings should be of particular value to the forward work of PSLG Working Group 3 which deals with controls and instrumentation.
